The European Space Agency and the Galileo Teacher Training Program join hands again to bring cutting edge training opportunities to all interested teachers. In 2022, we hope to be able to organize a face-to-face course, with the opportunity to visit the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC).

The workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject domains willing to dive into a real STEAM experience (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths).

The program will include presentations by scientists, hands-on activities, digital tools, research activities, visits to the facility and observing sessions with telescopes at ESAC.

The training is organized by CESAR (Cooperation through Education in Science and Astronomy Research), the resident educational team at ESAC, and NUCLIO (the coordinator of the Galileo Teacher Training Program), with the support of the team from the IAC (Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias), the Faulkes Telescope Project and the National Schools’ Observatory.
